What’s up Astros Nation (and anyone else that takes a read)! My name is Brandon Lute and I am the Astros contributor here at Prospects1500. My goal is the bring you as much as Astros news as possible in one location. The name of the site tells you our focus, but I’m sure I’ll touch on a good bit of all types of Astros news. Texas has been my home for almost 15 years and central Texas is where I have hung my hat for over 8 of them. I grew up in Ohio and an Indians fan but after taking in my first game at the Astrodome over 20 years ago, a new love affair began. From the years that led me to hate the Braves through the last few lean years to present day, I have not gotten behind any sports team like I have the Astros.
I have been a fantasy sports “owner/GM” for as long as I can remember. Up until last year it was the year-to-year type of leagues. I am now involved in several deep dynasty leagues and think I have an addiction. That is what led me to this endeavor. I can take my love of the Astros, their farm system, and minor league baseball in general to the masses. I am lucky enough to live near several minor league stadiums including Corpus Christi (Astros AA), San Antonio (Padres AA), and Round Rock (Rangers AAA). I try to get to as many San Antonio Missions games as I can and scout the Texas League. Plus it’s nice to be guaranteed to see an Astros squad on several occassions.
Enough about me. You’re here to read about prospects and baseball in general. Please feel free to leave feedback as I will try to continuously improve my Astros coverage. Thanks for stopping by and GO ‘STROS!!
